Harrogate Herald - 2nd January 1918
Acknowledging the Herald, F Stringfellow says :
It is very nice
to know what is going on at home and read the letters from other
boys who are out here. I am fortunate in having another Harrogate
fellow along with me - Walter Fawcett, of Grove Road - so you can
guess we often talk of the old town and the passing events as we
read them each week in the Herald. We passed another Harrogate lad
the other day when we were on the move - Harry Smith, RGA, of Grove
Park Road; had a few passing words. He said he had just returned
from leave. We have passed through many ruined villages and towns in
our travels, and had some exciting and also interesting experiences.
We are having real Christmas weather just now; very keen frosts, and
about six inches of snow on the ground. Regret to see so many
Harrogate boys in the casualty lists, but hope the New Year will
soon see an end to it.
